GdS: Pioli asks for Lazio star Milinkovic-Savic – why the deal is not impossible

By Oliver Fisher -

There is one target for the midfield department that Stefano Pioli seems to have put above all the others, and that is Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

As reported by today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via, Pioli has in fact indicated that the Lazio star is the perfect prototype for the role of attacking midfielder in his 4-2-3-1: a physical midfielder with great technique, as well as quality in the final pass and even his shooting.

The good news for Milan is that the Serbia international’s contract is expiring in a year and in all likelihood he will leave Lazio in the summer. Their president Claudio Lotito drives a hard bargain, but could let him leave for the €25-30m that Milan would offer.

Paolo Maldini has been dreaming of ‘SMS’ for some time as well, and though he might not be the typical RedBird or Elliott Management signings since he is already 28 years old, the owners evaluated the acquisition of Paulo Dybala last summer showing they are willing to look at players in their prime.

Milinkovic-Savic has amassed 7 goals and 8 assists in 34 Serie A appearances this season, in addition to 2 goals in 6 Europa League games.

  1. He is the best midfielder in Italian League in Consistant way in many years.
    And he is the Actual Player we need to win around .
    And it is time to strike the deal ASAP.
    Sigm him in immidiate way.
    S Piolli is rigjht to have him and this time ia agree with him

  2. spend all money on savic and we will have the same super hard season – thats stupid of the coach – ask for RW WTF

  3. Sign him ASAP

    with SMS and Tonali/Bennacer our midfield would bully Serie A.

    Involve Origi, Messias and Balo-Toure in a deal if possible.

  4. IIIIIIIIF he can be bought for mere 30M€ it would be absolutely insane NOT to get him. He’d guarantee goals. Unlike our current set of midfielders/#10s.

  5. I really don’t get why ppl think he’s good. He’s one of the most overrated players in Serie A today. There are much better lower cost options including Luis Alberto though a couple years older. Or Berardi and we need a RW anyway

    Or both lol 😅
